    Hello everyone...
    I overwrote the com.apple.springboard.plist file in /var/mobile/library/preferences and it messed up my crazy theme set up I had going on...

    Could anyone please upload or send me the stock jailbroken iPhone OS 3.0 com.apple.springboard file located in that directory??

    I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

    I think if you restart your iPhone it makes a new plist file.

    I've restarted a couple of times... it hasn't fixed it. I think bc I overwrote the original with an edition with extra lines of code it is messing some settings up. still looking for an upload of someones 3.0 com.apple.springboard file located in /var/mobile/library/preferences

    Delete it and then restart.

    Thanks so much everyone for the help. I tried it out and it's actually my fault anyway I should have backed up the file before I messed with it. Turns out since I'm using iHome v2.5 theme (which took alot of moving icons around) its actually dependent on the location of your icons on the iphone. nobody's plist file will match what I had set up in my plist file unless they are also using iHome with the same icon positions lol. so it is totally my fault and I will be reorganizing the icons today back into position. Thanks so much again though for your help and support I am a big fan of the site and will start posting more often.

    Peace!!
